I haven’t shared my struggles with thyroid medication publicly but it has been part of my life for almost two decades. One of the worst effects of taking the medication is my thinning hair. I’ve always prided myself on my long, thick hair but years of thyroid medication has had an impact and it’s been on my list for years to find something that helps. I decided to try The Greenery Lab shampoo and conditioner to revive hair growth and I’m hoping for a noticeable difference.
About twenty years ago, I was told that I had hyperthyroidism. I honestly couldn’t see a downside to it. It sounded great to me. I was excessively thin my whole life and I ate whatever I wanted. What I realized is when the thyroid gland is overactive the body’s processes speed up and you may experience nervousness, anxiety, rapid heartbeat, hand tremor, excessive sweating, weight loss, and sleep problems, among other symptoms. It was suggested by multiple doctors that I have radio active iodine treatment to kill my thyroid, which meant that I would need to take medication for the rest of my life. That alternative scared me less than the side effects of hyperthyroidism so I went ahead with it. To this day, I question my decision but it’s something I have to live with.
One of the worst side effects is that my hair has thinned rapidly over the years of taking thyroid medication. Growing up, I had the thickest, most healthy hair of anyone I knew. I was known for it. So it’s been difficult to slowly watch it get thinner, which lead me to research hair products that can help.
The Greenery Lab Perilla Fo-ti Shampoo and Conditioner Set washes away waste and revives hair growth. EWG (Environmental Working Group) verified, the formulas are aimed to be a natural solution to rejuvenate hair growth. The Greenery Lab products are best used together. This product is vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, silicone-free, sulfate-free, gluten-free, and nut-free.
I’m really happy with the Perilla fo-ti shampoo and conditioner set. I love the smell; it’s sweet and leaves my hair very soft. After only a few uses, it seemed to add volume to my hair. I’m going to continue using it with high hopes.
Additionally, I’ve been spending way more time in the pool since we moved to Texas. The pool chemicals are harsh on my hair but the natural shampoo and conditioner leave my hair soft, fresh, and clean.
There has been a dynamic change in the beauty industry to clean out the toxins in our products and I’ve become more and more conscious of the shift. I’m excited to incorporate the unique blend of plants as a natural solution for health and growth.
